the jams here are already the stuff of legend among heads so i'll just say they are deservedly so. what wins out for me are the sharp takes on the ballads that were new at the time, and were a bit hit or miss as far as how solid they came off.
the jam>ship of fools sequence is some of the most beautiful playing the dead ever did. it sounds almost (i don't want to get in trouble here) practiced. every lick jerry and bob peel off sounds perfect, no hesitation, no feeling around in the dark, just saying it as it's meant to be said, sublime. a band in perfect sync. same goes for to lay me down, with donna sounding great, a rarity in the wall days, because the damn thing was so loud she couldn't hear herself. great vox all around here, jerry esp on point this night. china doll is where they pull out the serious "i have never heard them sing like that" harmonies. you may cry, i did. a languid, breezy "black peter" exemplifies the performance, it's soft, tough, bluesy, jazzy, gorgeous. keith gets some on this one with what sounds like a b3 hammond, i can't recall what he had on tour around this time.
i don't like hyperbole and try to avoid it, that said this is one of fav boots of all time, and may be my very favorite. over the years, 25 since i first heard it, i've come back to it as often and probably more than others i love, boston fall 1973 run, may 1977, dillon 1974, dane county spring & fall 1973, cow palace 1974. i need to stop now. as you can see, i have 3 years that tend to be the goldmine for me.
so from the amazing darkstar>spanish>usblues to the one and only performance of "let it rock" to the sweet sweet ballads to the lazily rockin "casey jones" i highly recommend this skull banger of classic dead. cheers!

this 24 bit transfer is fantastic.
Huge thanks to Jerry Moore (RIP) and Rob Berger.
I'd give it eight stars if I could. Jerry Moore made some of the best GD recordings. This is one of 'em.
Subject: Files corrupt??
A shame - I would love to hear this show.
Subject: Sounds great ... for seconds at a time .
I am not an ace in this 24bit dvd stuff, but I have been able to do this before , and not have had a problem . Is there something wrong with the files or,something wrong on my end ?
It is fustrateing , because it sounds so great , for the few moments I can hear .
Subject: ummmm, wtf!?!?!
